    Four spikes - one still maybe a week away, and the others only opening last night and today- not yet at their best I think; but this is my only chance to take pics before it goes away to a show - UKs biggest orchid show.
    Not a window sill plant - maybe 90 cm across and perhaps 75cm high. Usually hangs up in my greenhouse.
    Could be compared with D.brockartii which I posted a week or two ago, and which some think is a synonym.
